Dream Big is a one day conference and workshop on the theme of Arts and Regional Festivals. We have gathered together a high class field of speakers who have inspired many major events in other areas across Australia.
The day will take the form of a morning of inspiring talks, a satisfying lunch, and then an afternoon facilitated workshop so that participants come away, not only inspired, but with concrete ideas for projects and the information of how to fund them.
The conference will focus on how to include creative projects in your festival, and how to fund these projects. We will also talk about the life-cycle of festivals, and how volunteer groups can revitalise their events.
It is a must-attend event for anyone involved in festivals throughout the Riverina, whether they be working for the many councils, working with a festival or event, or artists hoping to gain employment with festivals.
